IN a shambolic voting debacle the unionists got their ayes, noes and maybes all confused during a debate about the Bill of Rights.
An arcane Petition of Concern also backfired on nationalists.
For those of you who could care less – i.e. most of the population – a debate saw the unionist motion fall, but not fall, a PUP amendment sort of pass, but not really and a petition of concern disappear somewhere.
Still, all lively stuff for political anoraks and the Bill of Rights consultation, once again, going nowhere quickly.
